The Sights on the Boardwalk in Wildwood

Wildwood Boardwalk in New JerseyA few times every year we head down to North Wildwood in New Jersey for relaxation and fun! It’s one of our favorite places to go when spring, summer and fall vacations roll around. Matter of fact, once we fully retire, we hope to move down to the south Jersey Shore on a full-time basis.

One of the reasons millions of people flock to Wildwood every year for their summer vacations happens to be the Wildwood Boardwalk. In my honest opinion, it’s the BEST boardwalk at the Jersey Shore!

Sightseer Tram Car on Wildwood Boardwalk

The boardwalk starts in North Wildwood and runs down to Wildwood Crest. If you’re in good physical shape, you could walk the entire length of the boardwalk and if not, you can hop a ride on the world famous Sightseer Tram Car, which charges $3.00 per person, per way.

You’ll find hundreds upon hundreds of gift shops, souvenir shops, jewelry stores, candy stores, restaurants, ice cream parlors, arcades, clothing stores, home decor & kitchen shops and more lining both sides of the boardwalk.

If you get tired of walking, you can sit on one of the many park benches that line the boardwalk to do some people watching or you can duck into one of the many places to grab a quick bite to eat. Some of the best food in the area can be found up on the boardwalk!

In addition to all of the fun things I’ve already told you about, you’ll find 3 large piers (Morey’s Piers) that are jam-packed with amusement rides and carnival-style games! Plus, if you love outdoor waterparks, you’ll find three of those for you and your family to enjoy too!

  1. Makes me wish it were closer than 2,000 miles from me. I’d love to see this area. Lots of fun things to do.

    As a child we spent many vacations in Wildwood Crest. Then when I was raising my daughters we ended up in North Wildwood. Unfortunately I haven’t been to Wildwood in a number of years. Miss it.

  3. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I have not yet had the chance to visit the Boardwalk in Wildwood.. I am sure that I would enjoy it as much as you do.

  4. Tamra Phelps says:

    I’ve heard of Wildwood & the Boardwalk, of course, but I’ve never been there. It looks like a really fun way to spend the day.

  5. Cathy Jarolin says:

    The Wildwood Boardwalk sound fantastic. If we are able too, I would love to take a vacation to south New Jersey to see it. We live in Northern Illinois is the weather pretty much the same as here? I have never been on a Boardwalk anywhere. I really think I am missing out on something! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Well, if you come to south Jersey or south central PA…I would love to show you around. There are beautiful beaches along the east coast but IMHO…North Wildwood, Stone Harbor and Cape May are the prettiest ones in the north east!
